Having read the book, and much of the resulting spin-off infograms it was refreshing to see a publication that acted more like a tour-guide, and less like an amateur sleuth. Full of informative diagrams and photographs, as well as facts, and some of the legends, around all of the people, places and objects mentioned in the original story, this is a reference book for the die-hards and the curious alike.

Even after reading and seeing all the publications and movies that have sprung up in the wake of Dan Brown's book, I still found many new facts and fictions revealed on every page, and it gave me a better appreciation of the movie since I had an idea of what to expect as the main characters ventured around parts of Europe.

Overall, if you are ever planning to pass near any of the locations, you would be well advised to grab this book first, as it will give you a good idea of what to expect, what to look for, and how not to come across as a typical gawping, shutterbug tourist. It's not a huge lump of paper and cardboard, it's a nice tidy softcover publication full of glossy pictures that give even the armchair tourist a good feel for the locations. Thumbs UpThumbs Up

Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun, and the galaxy is a very strange and startling place.
